Hey, I'm sorry if this is in the wrong forum!
Firstly, I'd like to apologise if any of this is gross.
I used to train about three years ago and made some great progress but then got lazy and stopped up until January this year when I started hitting the gym hard and eating properly to gain weight. The only problem is in december I started having severe diarrhea and didn't think anything of it.
I went to the doctors about two months later and they couldn't find anything with blood tests, so I had to go for a colonoscopy (which I wouldn't recommend had it not been for the laughing gas that they give you!) and was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis. They gave me medication and now at the end of april, 4 months later my diarrhea is FINALLY gone. I still have another 6 weeks of medication left (a corticosteroid and anti-inflammatory) but it IS gone.
Since january I've seen some awesome gains in strength in the gym but I was wondering if at all the diarrhea could have slowed down my gains? I'd like to hear your take on the situation, thanks a lot guys!
By the way, I'm a 19 year old male, average build with average amounts of fat.
In about a month's time I'll be checking in to let people know if it did have any effect
